EX-CM’S SPOKESMAN JAN ACHAKZAI QUITS PML-N

Former chief minister Nawab Sanaullah Zehri’s spokesman Jan Achakzai on Thursday announced to quit Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) over reservations.

Addressing a press conference at Quetta Press Club, Jan Achakzai alleged that the in-house change in Balochistan was the result of PML-N leadership’s lack of attention to the province.

Flaying the PML-N President Mian Nawaz Sharif, Jan Achakzai added that confrontation of ousted premier with institutions was his personal tussle.

The PML-N-led government could not deliver and meet expectations of masses in Balochistan. The government paid no heed to provincial affairs which paved way for an in-house change in the province, Achakzai counted the reasons behind toppling of Nawab Sanaullah Zehri’s regime.

“I have several options regarding my political future and I would soon announce my plan,” Achakzai told media men.
